... had heard from a friend, Judy, about an interesting place called Flora-Bama, which is on the beach at the Florida-Alabama stateline. We spent several hours there enjoying musical entertainment. First up was Brent Burns who played the guitar and sang many original songs that he co-wrote. Next up were the Perdido Brothers, a group of four musicians who performed music in a style that we enjoyed. We completed the ...

... broke and leaked all over and added a "must do" job before leaving. Once the new hot water heater was installed, we could finally focus on leaving. So this morning we started packing and discovered that our old "bubble", the storage carrier that goes on top of the van is done. Once packed it wouldn't close.

So Paula and I dashed off to Sears and at 4:30 this afternoon we finally cast off. It ...

Having managed to scale down to 1 suitcase and getting treated to a Towncar to the Airport, my flight to Miami is delayed! I'm off the Wagon for this vacation so it's off to the airport bar I go! Thanks for the ride Carlos. The delay turned into re routing me through London and a total loss of a full day in Milan. Luckily during my Heathrow layover Nessie came to the ...

Nice hotel, grouchy staff, bad area

from

Yes, the area is really, really bad. As I was driving thru and about to go look for a hotel elsewhere, I finally saw the hotel. It gave me hope. Inside, it was clean, with a huge lobby. Check in line was incredibly slow; 4 people behind the desk, only 2 working. The other two were training, perhaps? Checked in, room key didn't work. Another guest told me she had the same problem every day of their stay. Two trips later, the room key still doesn't work; they re-key again. Finally, it does!

Why all the negative reviews??

from

My sister and I stayed overnight here (Friday Dec 3, 2004) before attending the final football game of the season for FSU. We found the staff to be very friendly, the room was very clean and in "like new" condition. We had an inside room with a wonderful view of the lobby and fountain. We opted to upgrade our free continetal breakfast to the hot breakfast buffet only $4.95 and found the dining room to be very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great! It's true, one might be inclined to consider the neigborhood rundown but I did not feel unsafe. It's right off I75 and well lit at night.

NICE HOTEL, GREAT STAFF, BAD AREA

from

This hotel is really nice. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is made almost like a resort.

However, the area that the hotel is in is really rough. The local stores are robbed frequently and there are street fights quite regularly.

A couple of streets over they have some nicer areas.

I would recomend the hotel again, I just wish it was in a different area.

It is only one minute drive from Busch Gardens which is great

Go somewhere else

from

Hotel appearance OK...Staff very nice...Rooms were below par: decor was shabby; bathroom was in need of repair (tiles broken/poorly repaired;toilet bowl was loose; noisy air conditioner; window drapes/covers were real cheap. The surrounding area is run down/commercial...very depressing.

Not Happy

from

The staff was nice, hotel was in progress of painting rooms, pool and one hot tub was broken (COLD WATER), the second hot tub had brown water and you had to share with 8+ other peope. Do not stay in the back of the hotel, scary.

Loved

from

I recently stayed at the Comfort Inn Conference Center on Busch Blvd.

with my family and we liked it! They have a beautiful indoor pool, which allowed my kids to swim at night and the staff was wonderful! The rooms were clean and you can't beat the price!

Drive past this one.

from

The hotel staff was nice, but the place was a dump. The hot tub smelled like pee. The beds and pillows would be better at a refugee camp. The neighborhood could rival a city in Iraq. The whole area around Busch Gardens is alittle dummpy.

Gross

from

Ugh. Do NOT stay here. It is musty, gross, and unsafe. There are like 50 hotels in this area to pick from. Just avoid this one, seriously.

Scary

from

Okay, Busch Gardens isn't exactly in the best neighborhood. This hotel is close to Busch Gardens but that is not a good thing. Businesses in the surrounding area have barbed wire fences and bars on the windows. We wound up in a room on the back of the hotel. It was musty and damp. There was a big black mold spot on the carpet by the sliding glass door. If you must stay here, definately pay extra to reserve a room in the courtyard area. The indoor pool is in the courtyard though and you may have a lingering chlorine smell. At least you might feel a little safer. Chlorine in the pool was so strong that after a few minutes, my husbands grey shorts turned yellow. One exit down the highway had hotels and restaurants that were MUCH nicer!
